the English spa town to standards of care in Cuba to provide a
context for modern urban health development.
Covers a wide range of environmental, ecological, health and
Case studies and examples show how health policy and procedure
is practically applied to sustainable urban development.
'Urban Design: Health and the Therapeutic Environment' outlines
best practice for healthy, sustainable urban design and provides a
reference tool for architects, urban designers, landscape
architects, health professionals and planners.
